We used to be members here, but don't live that close by and my kids are getting older...today the 14 year old wisely opted to do something else, and we found that the 10 year old could still play here all day, the 12 year old got bored a bit faster but was still happy to come back for nostalgic...

I took my little brother here and it was a great and fun time for him. He had a lot of fun and he is only 5 years old. I suggest The Please Touch Muesum for little kids.

Our daughter had about 3 hours of fun at this museum and pretty much just scraped the surface of what she could do there. It was a nice wide open space with different rooms full of different activities. We were there on a weekday so am not sure if it's more busy at other times, but while we were there,... More

My 3 year old and 17 month old, had a great time. They could go and explore so many different areas. I think their favorites were the Shop Rite area where they could push a cart and pick food to put in it, and the hospital area where they could put babies in the crib and in the xray machine....

Kids enjoyed the trains, construction, water exhibits, mazes, carousel, etc. Worth the membership if you make 3 visits.

Good place to bring children under 10. Lots of stuff to "touch" without having to say "don't touch that". Older kids will find it boring. Spend a few hours letting the little ones wear themselves get tired.

Our daughter is a year and 9 month and she absolutely loved it here, as did we. They have so many different exhibits for the kids to play in and the staff was very attentive and friendly encouraging us to allow our little one to explore. As a parent it was nice to go somewhere and let your guard down... More

Visited the museum with 5 year old, he loved most of the exhibits, but some were just lame. Sunday was very busy as the time museum opened at 11, but by 1 it got a lot more quite. Might revisit, but not this year

A wonderful place to visit with children. It's a small town under the roof. It has everything: shop, pharmacy, post office, railway station, hospital, building and still a lot more. Children are like in real life are buyers and sellers, postmen, doctors. There simulated real items for games and learning. You will spend with your child is a great time... More
